Life in the city has been absolutely amazing, as you drive along the highway, you'll see skyscrapers with amazing structure and designs that gives a panoramic view of the cities in Malaysia. But sometimes our eyes tend to feel blurry by looking at structures above our shoulders and greenery is all we need to feel better from it.
Isolation, escaping from the bustling environment, peace, lush greenery, and captivating view of mother nature, it all best describes a small town known as Sekinchan.
Sekinchan is a small town located in Sabak Bernam, Selangor, Malaysia. This town highlights a wide and breathtaking view of the paddy fields which acts as a major rice producing area in Malaysia. In the month of June and December, the lush paddy fields turns into gold yellow which indicates the farmers that it is ready for harvesting.
At the Sekinchan Paddy Field itself, visitors can cycle along the tracks and visit factories that showcases how the paddy plants are processed. One of the most well-known paddy processing factory is PLS Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd (or Kilang Beras Rakyat Sekinchan Sdn Bhd) which allows tourist to learn more about the paddy fields and purchase the "pearl rice" that is famous among tourist that visits Sekinchan.
